Group Leader (Production Supervisor) (Former Employee) – St. Catharines, ON – 20 March 2017
The people you will work there are great on the front lines. The employees are fantastic as are most of the management staff. The biggest problem is the constant 7 days a week work week. While the pay is great everything else suffers and not many willing participants to come and assist you and take some OT for you.
Tool Setter,Machine Operator (Former Employee) – St. Catharines, ON – 26 May 2015

Quick Service Attendant (Current Employee) – Oshawa, ON – 25 May 2015
A typical day beings with being assigned your working area, which may differ each shift. You start in your area by setting up essentials that you need to use throughout your shift (mainly being food, stocking utensils. You learn efficiency during this process as well as how other areas work if you are assigned to an unfamiliar work space. Management is close the the other employees, and they are regularly by your side to help during working hours and also there to help with any issues you may have. This job is a demanding one due to the fast paced nature of it, which can become difficult, especially if something does not go to plan. However, the working environment is a very nice one and is the most enjoyable part of the job.
Computer Programmer and Warranty Analyst (Former Employee) – Oshawa, ON – 23 May 2015
The best thing that ever happened to me was landing a job at GM. No company is perfect, and there's always going to be something you don't like or don't agree with, but overall I was very challenged, motivated, and monetarily rewarded for my efforts.
Assembly Technician (Former Employee) – Oshawa, ON – 12 May 2015
Assembly of various parts to vehicles. Personally learned how to put together and take apart different aspects of a vehicle. Management is always getting the bad rap. But, they have a job to do to keep things running at the nominal rate. Most co-workers you would be able to get along with but as with most places there is some malcontents. Hardest part of General Motors is learning the first job you do. After that it seemed most jobs were easy to learn. The best part of the job here was pay day.
Suite Runner (Former Employee) – Oshawa, ON – 9 May 2015
The general motors centre was all about customer service, assisting customers and bringing them their orders was 90% of the job the other 10% was cleaning. I learned how to bus tables/rooms in a restaurant environment. The management was strict but still very nice and professional. My co-workers were always very supportive. The hardest part of the job was cleanup at the end of the day. But I loved meeting new people everyday.

Suites Hostess (Current Employee) – Oshawa, ON – 4 February 2015
They were right when they told me it would be the easiest serving job you would ever have. Not having any previous serving experience, I still think that notion is correct. It is an easy night time job to get you some extra cash. You aren't guaranteed a large tip, but if you are friendly and get their desires quickly, you can encounter some pretty generous people. The management is a little disorganized, but I can't blame them. There's 3/4 of them looking after about 40 people as well as dealing with any customer/hostess issue throughout an event. This only works for people with another part-time job, the hours are very scattered throughout each month.
A very enjoyable experience as a customer service representative
Customer service representative (Former Employee) – Across Canada – 1 February 2015
